A strange and beguiling collection of instrumental hallucinations, from alien weather reports to irritating drones, spacious soaring soundscapes to an absurdist funeral march.
Created with an unlikely pile of junk and (semi) musical instruments (including a collection of drums, some metal rods, the Casiotone, a couple of guitars, a clock radio, the Russian fx pedal ov doom, some beer bottles & the late lamented Electric Mistress) on the venerable Tascam 4-track, COL could be the soundtrack to the unfinished dreams of David Lynch.
